Arpley chimney plans to be discussed

Warrington Guardian: Arpley chimney plans to be discussed Arpley chimney plans to be discussed

PLANS for three chimney stacks at the Arpley landfill site will be discussed at a development management committee meeting tomorrow, Thursday.

Residents have been fighting a 12 and five year extension to the Sankey Bridges site but the latest proposal for the ‘gas utilisation compound’ has been described as ‘totally seperate’ from the landfill site.

Plans include a 25 metre stack being removed and replaced with three 23 metre chimneys.

The application has been recommended for approval despite 67 objections from residents with complaints over air quality, the length of the application until 2034 and the fact Arpley could be closed if an appeal is ruled against the tip owners.

The meeting will be held at 6.30pm in the Town Hall.

Three chimneys are you having a giraffe what happened to the so called green space? This is not going to go down well with Sankey residents that I am sure of.

These applications should all be refused as this landfill site is operating without a license, The previous license ran out in October 2013. The owners have shown nothing but contempt for the local community so the development management committee should return the unapproved application with the compliments of the local residents, If these plans are passed we will know just which side WBC are on regarding this landfill.

Not really. The gas plant will be there for many years even if the tip was closed already - without it methane just goes into the atmosphere rather than generating electricity. For what it's worth they claim the new stacks might be better in getting rid of the yellow smoke.

Bolton have been harnessing gas from their landfill tip to generate a useful supply of electricity for a number of years.

Thanks for the info Rex, You reminded me that the old fiat factory on winwick road used the methane from the winwick quay tip to heat the factory and offices for free. Maybe when this tip has gone they could build a community centre there and do the same and benefit the residents.
